My current work combines photography and encaustic wax, an ancient painting process. Layers of translucent hot wax are brushed over the surface of my images to give my artwork a luminous textured quality. A collage of imagery is combined with colorful pigments, exotic papers, textiles and other mixed media to give each piece a contemporary style all it’s own. I enjoy exploring creative possibilities that all art mediums provide me when combined with fine art photography.
Artists and photographers who have deeply influenced my work are Edward S. Curtis, Andy Warhol, T.C.Cannon, Annie Liebovitz and Banksy. My art is about educating and building awareness for it’s viewers on subjects very dear to me.
